<!-- NL2BR true //-->Akt 1 <br /> <br />Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats <br /> <br /><i>Are you blind when you're born? Can you see in the dark? <br />Can you look at a king? Would you sit on his throne? <br />Can you say of your bite that it's worse than your bark? <br />Are you cock of the walk when you're walking alone? <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Because Jellicles are and Jellicles do <br />Jellicles do and Jellicles would <br />Jellicles would and Jellicles can <br />Jellicles can and Jellicles do <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />When you fall on your head, do you land on your feet? <br />Are you tense when you sense there's a storm in the air? <br />Can you find your way blind when you're lost in the street? <br />Do you know how to go to the Heaviside Layer? <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Because Jellicles can and Jellicles do <br />Jellicles do and Jellicles can <br />Jellicles can and Jellicles do <br />Jellicles do and Jellicles can <br />Jellicles can and Jellicles do <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Can you ride on a broomstick to places far distant? <br />Familiar with candle, with book and with bell? <br />Were you Whittington's friend?

What's a Jellicle cat?</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Naming of Cats <br /> <br /><i>The naming of cats is a difficult matter <br />It isn't just one of your holiday games <br />You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter <br />When I tell you a cat must have three different names <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />First of all, there's the name that the family use daily <br />Such as Peter, Augustus, Alonzo or James <br />Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey <br />All of them sensible, everyday names <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />There are fancier names if you think they sound sweeter <br />Some for the gentlemen, some for the dames <br />Such as Plato, Admetas, Electra, Demeter <br />But all of them sensible everyday names <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />But I tell you a cat needs a name that's particular <br />A name that's peculiar, and more dignified <br />Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular <br />Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride? <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Of names of this kind, I can give you a quorum <br />Such as Munkustrap, Quaxo or Coricopat <br />Such as Bombalurina, or else Jellylorum <br />Names that never belong to more than one cat <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />But above and beyond there's still one name left over <br />And that is the name that you never will guess <br />The name that no human research can discover <br />But the at himself knows, and will never confess <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />When you notice a cat in profound meditation <br />The reason, I tell you, is always the same: <br />His mind is engaged in a rapt contemplation <br />Of the thought <br />Of the thought <br />Of the thought <br />Of his name <br /> <br />His ineffable effable effanineffable <br />Deep and inscrutable singular name</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Invitation to the Jellicle Ball <br /> <br /><i>Jellicle Cats come out tonight <br />Jellicle Cats come one come all <br />The Jellicle moon is shining bright <br />Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats come out tonight <br />Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats are white and black <br />Jellicle Cats are of moderate size <br />Jellicles jump like a jumping jack <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats have moonlit eyes <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />We're quiet enough in the morning hours <br />We're quiet enough in the afternoon <br />Reserving our terpsichorean powers <br />To dance by the light of the Jellicle Moon <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats meet once a year <br />At the Jellicle Ball where we all rejoice <br />And the Jellicle Leader will soon appear <br />And make what is known as the Jellicle Choice <br />When Old Deuteronomy, just before dawn <br />Through a silence you feel you could cut with a knife <br />Announces the cat who can now be reborn <br />And come back to a different Jellicle Life <br />For waiting up there is the Heaviside Layer <br />Full of wonders one Jellicle only will see <br />And Jellicles ask because Jellices dare: <br /> <br />Who will it be? <br />Who will it be?</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Old Gumbie Cat <br /> <br /><i>I have a Gumbie Cat in mind <br />Her name is Jennyanydots <br />Her coat is of the tabby kind with tiger stripes and leopard spots <br />All day she sits upon the stair or on the step or on the mat <br />She sits and sits and sits and sits <br />And that's what makes a Gumbie Cat <br />That's what makes a Gumbie Cat! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />But . . . <br />When the day's hustle and bustle is done <br />Then the Gumbie Cat's work is but hardly begun <br />And when all the family's in bed and asleep <br />She tucks up her skirts to the basement to creep <br />She is deeply concerned with the ways of the mice <br />Their behaviour's not good and their manners not nice <br />So when she has got them lined up on the matting <br />She teaches them music, crocheting and tatting <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />I have a Gumbie Cat in mind <br />Hr name is Jennyanydots <br />Her equal would be hard to find <br />Se likes the warm and sunny spots <br />All day she sits beside the hearth or on the bed or on my hat <br />She sits and sits and sits and sits <br />And that's what makes a Gumbie Cat <br />That's what makes a Gumbie Cat! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />But . . . When the day's hustle and bustle is done <br />Then the Gumbie Cat's work is but hardly begun <br />As she finds that the mice will not ever keep quiet <br />She is sure it is due to irregular diet <br />And believing that nothing is done without trying <br />She sets right to work with her baking and frying <br />She makes them a mouse-cake of bread and dried peas <br />And a beautiful fry of lean bacon and cheese <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />I have a Gumbie Cat in mind <br />Her name is Jennyanydots <br />The curtain cord she likes to wind and tie it into sailor knots <br />She sits upon the windowsill or anything that's smooth and flat <br />She sits and sits and sits and sits <br />And that's what makes a Gumbie Cat <br />That's what makes a Gumbie Cat! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />But . . . <br />When the day's hustle and bustle is done <br />Then the Gumbie Cat's work is but hardly begun <br />She thinks that the cockroaches need employment <br />To prevent them from idle and wanton destroyment <br />So she's formed from that lot of disorderly louts <br />A troop of well disciplined helpful boy scouts <br />With a purpose in life and a good deed to do <br />And she's even created a Beetles Tattoo! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />So for old Gumbie Cats let us give three cheers <br />On whom well ordered households depend, it appears <br />Three cheers, three cheers, three cheers! <br />For she's a jolly good fellow! <br /> <br />Thank you my dears!</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Rum Tum Tugger <br /> <br /><i>The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious cat <br /> <br />If you offer me pheasant I'd rather have grouse <br />If you put me in a house I would much prefer a flat <br />If you put me in a flat then I'd rather have a house <br />If you set me on a mouse then I only want a rat <br />If you set me on a rat then I'd rather chase a mouse <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious cat <br />And there isn't any call for me to shout it <br />For he will do as he do do <br />And there's no doing anything about it! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Rum Tum Tugger is a terrible bore <br /> <br />When you let me in, then I want to go out <br />I'm always on the wrong side of every door <br />And as soon as I'm at home, then I'd like to get about <br />I like to lie in the bureau drawer <br />But I make such a fuss if I can't get out <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious cat <br />And it isn't any use for you to doubt it <br />For he will do as he do do <br />And there's no doing anything about it! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious beast <br /> <br />My disobliging ways are a matter of habit <br />If you offer me fish then I always want a feast <br />When there isn't any fish then I won't eat rabbit <br />If you offer me cream then I sniff and sneer <br />But I only like what I find for myself <br />So you'll catch me in it right up to my ears <br />If you put it away on the larder shelf <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Rum Tum Tugger is artful and knowing <br />The Rum Tum Tugger doesn't care for a cuddle <br />But I'll leap in your lap in the middle of your sewing <br />For there's nothing I enjoy like a horrible muddle! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious cat <br />The Rum Tum Tugger doesn't care for a cuddle <br /> <br />The Rum Tum Tugger is a curious cat <br />And there isn't any need for me to spout it <br />For he will do as he do do <br />And there's no doing anything about it!</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Grizabella <br /> <br /><i>Remark the Cat who hesitates towards you <br />In the light of the door which opens on her like a grin <br />You see the border of her coat is torn and stained with sand <br />And you see the corner of her eye twist like a crooked pin <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Grizabella the Glamour Cat <br />Grizabella the Glamour Cat <br />Who would ever suppose that that <br />Was Grizabella the Glamour Cat?</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Bustopher Jones <br /> <br /><i>Bustopher Jones is not skin and bones <br />In fact, he's remarkably fat <br />He doesn't haunt pubs - he has eight or nine clubs <br />For he's the St. James's Street Cat! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />He's the cat we all greet as he walks down the street <br />In his coat of fastidious black <br />No commonplace mousers have such well-cut trousers <br />Or such an impeccable back <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />In the whole of St. James's the smartest of names is <br />The name of this Brummel of cats <br />And we're all of us proud to be nodded or bowed to <br />By Bustopher Jones in white spats <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />In the whole of St. James's the smartest of names is <br />The name of this Brummel of cats <br />And we're all of us proud to be nodded or bowed to <br />By Bustopher Jones in white spats <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />My visits are occasional to the Senior Educational <br />And it is against the rules <br />For any one cat to belong both to that <br />And the Joint Superior Schools <br />For a similar reason when game is in season <br />I'm found not at Fox's but Blimp's <br />I am frequently seen at the gay Stage and Screen <br />Which is famous for winkles and shrimps <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />In the season of venison I give my ben'son <br />To the Pothunter's succulent bones <br />And just before noon's not a moment too soon <br />To drop in for a drink at the Drones <br />When I'm seen in a hurry there's probably curry <br />At the Siamese or at the Glutton <br />If I look full of gloom then I've lunched at the Tomb <br />On cabbage, rice pudding and mutton <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />In the whole of St. James's is the smartest of names is <br />The name of this Brummel of cats <br />And we're all of us proud to be nodded or bowed to <br />By Bustopher Jones in white <br />Bustopher Jones in white <br />Bustopher Jones in white spats <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />So, much in this way passes Bustopher's day <br />At one club or another he's found <br />It can be no surprise that under our eyes <br />He has grown unmistakably round <br />He's a twenty-five pounder, or I am a bounder <br />And he's putting on weight everyday <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />But I'm so well preserved because I've observed <br />All my life a routine, and I'd say <br />I am still in the prime, I shall last out my time <br />That's the word from the stoutest of cats <br /> <br />It must and it shall be spring in Pall Mall <br />While Bustopher Jones wears white <br />Bustopher Jones wears white <br />Bustopher Jones wears white spats! <br /> <br />Macavity!</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer <br /> <br /><i>Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer <br />We're a notorious couple of cats <br />As knockabout clowns, quick-change comedians <br />Tight-rope walkers and acrobats <br />We have an extensive reputation <br />We make our home in Victoria Grove <br />This is merely our centre of operation <br />For we are incurably given to rove <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />We are very well known in Cornwall Gardens <br />In Launceston Place and in Kensington Square <br />We have really a little more reputation <br />Than a couple of cats can very well bear <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />If the area window is found ajar <br />And the basement looks like a field of war <br />If a tile or two comes loose on the roof <br />(Which presently fails to be waterproof) <br />If the drawers are pulled out from the bedroom chest <br />And you can't find one of your winter vests <br />If after supper one of the girls <br />Suddenly misses her Woolworth pearls <br />The family will say, "It's that horrible cat! <br />It was Mungojerrie or Rumpelteazer!" <br />And most of the time they leave it at that <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer have a very unusual gift of the gab <br />We are highly efficient cat burglars as well <br />And remarkably smart at a smash and grab <br />We make our home in Victoria Grove <br />We have no regular occupation <br />We are plausible fellows who like to engage <br />A friendly policeman in conversation <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />When the family assembles for Sunday dinner <br />With their minds made up that they won't get thinner <br />On Argentine joint, potatoes and greens <br />And the cook will appear from behind the scenes <br />And say in a voice that is broken with sorrow, <br />"I'm afraid you must wait and have dinner tomorrow! <br />For the joint has gone from the oven like that!" <br />The family will say, "It's that horrible cat! <br />It was Mungojerrie or Rumpelteazer!" <br />And most of the time they leave it at that <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer have a wonderful way of working together <br />And some of the time you would say it was luck <br />And some of the time you would say it was weather <br />We go through the house like a hurricane <br />And no sober person could take his oath <br />Was it Mungojerrie or Rumpelteazer? <br />Or could you have sworn that it mightn't be both? <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />And when you hear a dining room smash <br />Or up from the pantry there comes a loud crash <br />Or down from the library there comes a loud ping <br />From a vase that was commonly said to be Ming <br />The family will say: "Now which was which cat? <br />It was Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer!" <br />And there's nothing at all to be done about that!</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Old Deuteronomy <br /> <br /><i>Old Deuteronomy's lived a long time <br />He's a cat who has lived many lives in succession <br />He was famous in proverb and famous in rhyme <br />A long while before Queen Victoria's accession <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Old Deuteronomy's buried nine wives <br />And more - I am tempted to say ninety-nine <br />And his numerous progeny prospers and thrives <br />And the village is proud of him in his decline <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />At the sight of that placid and bland physiognomy <br />When he sits in the sun on the vicarage wall <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Oldest Inhabitant croaks <br />Well, of all things, can it be really? <br />Yes! No! Ho! Hi! Oh, my eye! <br />My mind may be wandering, but I confess <br />I believe it is Old Deuteronomy! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Old Deuteronomy sits in the street <br />He sits in the high street on market day <br />The Bullocks may bellow, the sheep they may bleat <br />But the dogs and the herdsmen will turn them away <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The cars and the lorries run over the curb <br />And the villagers put up a notice "Road closed" <br />So that nothing untoward may chance to disturb <br />Deuteronomy's rest when he feels so disposed <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The digestive repose of that feline's gastronomy <br />Must never be broken whate'er may befall <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Oldest Inhabitant croaks <br />Well, of all things, can it be really? <br />Yes! No! Ho! Hi! Oh, my eye! <br />My mind may be wandering, but I confess <br />I believe it is Old Deuteronomy! <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Well, of all things, can it be really? <br />Yes! No! Ho! Hi! Oh, my eye! <br /> <br />My legs may be tottery, I must go slow <br />And be careful of Old Deuteronomy!</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />The Jellicle Ball <br /> <br /><i>Jellicle Cats come out tonight <br />Jellicle Cats come one, come all <br />The Jellicle Moon is shining bright <br />Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats are black and white <br />Jellicle Cats are rather small <br />Jellicle Cats are merry and bright <br />And pleasant to hear when we caterwaul <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats have cheerful faces <br />Jellicle Cats have bright black eyes <br />We like to practice our airs and graces <br />And wait for the Jellicle Moon to rise <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats develop slowly <br />Jellicle Cats are not too big <br />Jellicle Cats are roly poly <br />We know how to dance a gavotte and a jig <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Until the Jellicle Moon appears <br />We make our toilette and take our repose <br />Jellicles wash behind their ears <br />Jellicles dry between their toes <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats are white and black <br />Jellicle Cats are of moderate size <br />Jellicles jump like a jumping jack <br />Jellicle Cats have moonlit eyes <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />We're quiet enough in the morning hours <br />We're quiet enough in the afternoon <br />Reserving our terpsichorean powers <br />To dance by the light of the Jellicle Moon <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats are black and white <br />Jellicle Cats (as we said) are small <br />If it happens to be a stormy night <br />We will pracitce a caper or two in the hall <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />If it happens the sun is shining bright <br />You would say we had nothing to do at all <br />We are resting and saving ourselves to be right <br />For the Jellicle Moon and the Jellicle Ball <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Jellicle Cats come out tonight <br />Jellicle Cats come one, come all <br />The Jellicle Moon is shining bright <br />Jellicles come to the Jellicle Ball</i> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Grizabella: The Glamour Cat <br /> <br /><i>She haunted many a low resort <br />Near the grimy road of Tottenham Court <br />She flitted about the No-Man's Land <br />From "The Rising Sun" to "The Friend at Hand" <br />And the postman sighed as he scratched his head <br />"You really had thought she ought to be dead <br />And who would ever suppose that that <br />Was Grizabella the Glamour Cat!" <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Grizabella the Glamour Cat <br />Grizabella the Glamour Cat <br />Who would ever suppose that that <br />Was Grizabella the Glamour Cat <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Midnight, not a sound from the pavement <br />Has the moon lost her memory? <br />She is smiling alone <br />In the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet <br />And the wind begins to moan</i>
